The thermochemical and flammability properties of some polymers considered for use in aircraft interiors are described. The properties studied include: (1) thermochemical properties such as glass transition and melt temperature; (2) dynamic thermogravimetric analysis in anaerobic environment; (3) flammability properties such as oxygen index, flame spread, and smoke evolution, and (4) selected physical properties. The thermoplastic polymers evaluated included polyphenylene sulfide, polyaryl sulfone, 9, 9-bis (4-hydroxyphenyl) - fluorene polycarbonate - poly (dimethylsiloxane) and polyether sulfone. The thermoset polymers evaluated included epoxy, bismaleimide, a modified phenolic and polyaromatic melamine resin.
